Consperse stink bug

Euschistus conspersus Uhler

Stink bugs are sporadic pests of most deciduous tree fruits and can occasionally cause severe damage. The name stink bug comes from the insects' habit of exuding a fluid, which has a strong and usually disagreeable odor, from glands between the legs (more from Orchard Pest Management)
